No, Mr. Harper... That's not how Canadian governance works. Canadian elections aren't dichotomies like that, and that's not the decision that Canadians face.
Maybe that kind of scaremongering worked for Harper before, but in the aftermath of his party's past dishonest whining about potential coalition governance, many Canadians have likely brushed up on their basic civics, and should be quite aware that Mr. Harper's above claim is a cynical effort to exploit what he must see as an ignorant and know-nothing electorate. Treating Canadians as though they don't know the basics of their form of government might work in the short run, but isn't tenable over the long-term, and will hopefully come back to give Mr. Harper some well-earned political karmic payback.
Ironically, if Mr. Harper's party doesn't win a majority, does the above nonsense mean that he's conceding parliamentary confidence to a coalition? Will anyone ask him about it?
This is just the voice of one ordinary Canadian using sarcasm, snark, and the power of the internet to draw attention to some of the utter nonsense that is being packaged and sold these days as allegedly intelligent political commentary.
